Virtual Assembly

Designed to replicate what we do at the start of every week in school, our virtual assembly features a special guest interview every week with a key message for our students, staff and parents.

Episode 5

This week’s special guest star is scientist and illusionist Dr Matt Pritchard talking to us about reclaiming our sense of wonder. We have our first student Screen Test short film and Steve Judge is back, announcing the winners of his vision board competition from Episode 2.

After School Clubs & Competitions

To bring a distraction to the pupils’ week we run a selection of after school activities and competitions. These provide a different focus and experience whilst at home, as well as some fun.

This week our Art Studio releases their second edition of Art Leaders’ Lockdown Club Creative whilst Mr Thomas’ Latin Club and Frau Trotter’s Duolingo German Competition continue.

Mental Health & Wellbeing

Rest assured, Fyling Hall is here to support you and our students as much as possible during this difficult time. Your mental health and wellbeing are our priority. Remember, you can contact Mrs English at any time for support. We also continue to share resources which you and your families may find useful.
